The Career Exploration Centre (CEC) at SAIT Polytechnic is a unique, experiential, learner-centered facility for youth in grades 8 and 9.
The Centre is designed to encourage grade 8 and 9 students to explore their future career options based on their interests. A visit to the Career Exploration Centre will enhance their understanding of careers, the career exploration process, and applied education — preparing them to make informed learning and career pathway choices in high school and beyond.
SAIT is currently piloting the program and asking teachers, students and parents to participate in the pilot and the associated research. The purpose of the research is to help refine the Centre’s activities, exhibits and technology and to assess their impact on learning.
Pilot sessions are held on the SAIT campus and run from October 2015 through May 2016.
Deadline for applications is September 18, 2015
